  • Kim Foxx drops more felony cases as Cook County state’s attorney than her predecessor

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | August 10, 2020 | David Jackson, et al.
    Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx is dropping felony cases involving charges of murder and other serious offenses . . . During Foxx’s first three years as the county’s top prosecutor, her office dropped all charges against 29.9% of felony defendants, a dramatic increase over her predecessor. Foxx, a Democrat, swept into the state’s attorney’s office in 2016 vowing to reform the criminal justice system and reduce the population of Cook County Jail, which disproportionately holds low-income people of color. She is up for reelection in November. The Tribune found that Foxx’s higher rates of dropped cases included people accused...

    U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, blasted Teen Vogue on Thursday over a July column in which the writer advocates for the eventual end of private property rights. Columnist Kandist Mallett, who has recently focused on issues related to racial injustice protests, centered her argument around those struggling financially during the coronavirus pandemic -- such as those dealing with rent and eviction issues. “It’s been four months since the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic first highlighted the failures of capitalism and the incompetence of the United States government,” Mallett wrote in the piece, which was titled "An Eviction Crisis Is Coming...

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Thursday evening condemned the actions of rioters who attempted to set fire to a police precinct and blocked the exits while officers were inside. “When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder," Wheeler said in a news conference with Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell. "Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection...

    Former vice president Joe Biden tore into an innocent reporter who respectfully asked if the presumptive sufferer of dementia had taken a cognitive test, telling the terrified journalist that asking the question was similar to asking the interviewer if he was using cocaine. “No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man,” Biden yelled. “That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program if you had taken a test were you taking cocaine or not. What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” he asked. The CBS reporter attempted...

    President Trump on Monday called for the ouster of the highest-paid federal worker, Tennessee Valley Authority President Jeff Lyash, citing his plans to outsource jobs to India.

Trump said Lyash will soon lose his job too. “We’re getting rid of [Lyash] in one form or another. Either the board’s gonna do it, or we’re gonna do it, but he’s gone,” he said. “We will get somebody for a much lower...

He accused BLM of using “mafia tactics” and explained his position. “There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in,” Martinez wrote in a public Facebook post. “… All good people need...

    Social media giant Twitter suspended the account of Donald Trump Jr. after he shared a video of doctors talking about the controversial anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine. A message from the company said that some features of Trump Jr.'s account were "temporarily limited" after he violated the company's rules — specifically, a policy on "spreading misleading and potentially harmful misinformation" related to the coronavirus. The drug became a flashpoint in the administration's coronavirus response after President Trump began touting it as a possible cure. Trump said he took the drug after his personal valet caught the virus. White House trade and manufacturing...

    Rep. Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) said on Sunday that Antifa riots in Portland are a "myth." "That’s a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, D.C.," Nadler said after being asked if he disavowed violence in Portland. Nadler's comments contradict numerous news reports on the protesters—many of whom identify themselves as members of Antifa. Protests have continued in Portland for nearly 60 nights in a row, mainly targeting Hatfield Federal Courthouse and local police stations. The Portland Police Department officially declared the protests a riot Sunday after approximately 5,000 to 6,000 protesters surrounded the courthouse and began shooting fireworks at...

    American doctors are holding a “White Coat Summit” on Capitol Hill Monday to address what they call “a massive disinformation campaign” surrounding the Chinese coronavirus to which “American life has fallen casualty.” “If Americans continue to let so-called experts and media personalities make their decisions, the great American experiment of a Constitutional Republic with Representative Democracy, will cease,” reads the event’s information page. The purpose of the two day summit, organized by the Tea Party Patriots, is to allow “frontline doctors [the ability to] talk directly to the American people.” Topics to be discussed include the reopening of America’s schools,...

    The Trump administration is expecting that trillions of dollars in fiscal injections with trillions more of monetary crack from the Federal Reserve can boost the economy and revert economic activity to the “good ol’ days.” However, decades of Democratically-controlled big government in inner cities is learning that the promise of progressive policies and printing/borrowing their way out of economic collapse has yet to prevent social decay, let alone, socio-economic turmoil within American cities. It’s why President Trump is sending hundreds of federal agents to inner cities as record-high stock market prices have yet to translate into economic revival for “lawless”...
